Joey is not about to forgive Chandler, nor Rachel Ross, even now Thanksgiving is coming up. Monica is getting virtually no help, and gets ice in her eye but dares not go to her ophthalmologist and ex Richard Burke, but is excited to get his on call, who turns out to be his cute-to-die-for son Timothy, who has just broken up with his girl friend. Joey tells Ross he has sentenced Chandler to five years silent treatment, but is talked into hearing him out at Central Perk- just when Joey walks up to them Kathy kisses Chandler, and he decides to go looking for another apartment. Chandler is willing to do anything, and Joey decides: six hours locked up, like him when he allowed the robbers to lock him up in the closet and steal all their hardware, in a large, dark wooden box as proof of friendship, repentance and physical pain. Monica, now wearing an eye-patch, invites Timothy for Thanksgiving, and despite of the others teasing they get on great, till a kiss makes her feel almost incestuous...
